Guess what has jumped near the top of my list

Cemetery
We will be back to this exact spot in a few days to rest Margaret next to Johnny. Johnny was laid to rest there less than 48 hours ago.

 

Guess what has jumped near the top of my list.

Making, and paying for, my funeral arrangements.

Why?

Because i have seen how doing this in advance makes all the other details Family survivors have to deal with so much easier.

Plus, why would any of us wait?

Because we’re scared?

Because we can’t afford it?

Because that’s what our grandparent(s) did to our parent(s)?

Break the chain.

Set the example.

Be a leader.

It comes with a responsibility and a freedom many deny themselves.

Completely Different?

Dream big, plan early

Logan Pass at Dusk
Sometimes the opposite of arriving early – staying late – provides margin. After the parking lot empties, Nature awakens.

 

There is something about breathing room that literally defies logic.

Creating space on a countertop.

Arriving earlier than necessary.

Thriving on less.

Simplicity.

Ranger Tim, right.

 

Back at our room around noon, we (mostly Cheryl) packed and loaded the car. i double booked us for Friday night so we could check out of Rising Sun as late as we wanted to and still get to Kalispel before dark. With a 6:15am flight, we didn’t want to drive three hours over Going-To-The-Sun Road from 1:30am-4:30am.

A leisurely drive east from 2:30pm-5:30pm, with many stops, landed us in Apgar for dinner at Eddie’s. Some shopping and then a 45-minute drive to Kalispel. The hotel was less than impressive but we found things to be grateful for. The second day of the Olympics was on TV as we fell asleep around 10:30pm.

Plan and execute your plan

Walmart coolers
We got three.

 

We packed well. We stopped at Target and Walmart. We had a list. We’re here a week.

Plan

#Plan

Try to imagine anything great ever being accomplished without a plan.

Be honest and clear with yourself that nothing ever turns out the way we plan.

So no excuse for not starting.

Your initial plan is simply a guide, not something etched in stone.

Go decently organized person, go.
